Momentum for CCS Growing in the Gulf Region

Momentum for carbon capture and storage (CCS) is growing in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and around the world. ICYMI, watch a video of the Institute’s webinar, held on 23  February, where global and regional experts shared their knowledge with an audience of industrial and climate change stakeholders based in the GCC region.


Australian Government Opens CCUS Development Fund

The Australian Government opened a $50 million Carbon Capture, Use and Storage (CCUS) Development Fund on 1 March. Grants from $500,000 to $25 million will be dispersed from this fund to support a wide array of CCUS projects indifferent sectors: power generation, heavy industry, natural gas or hydrogen production, and direct air capture.



With the U.S. Back in the Paris Agreement, 2050 Climate Targets are Within Reach

On 19 February, the U.S. was officially accepted back in the Paris Agreement. Our CEO, Brad Page, discusses the many reasons why this is very good news for global climate targets and the future of CCS.



Industry Experts and EU Policymakers Talk Climate Targets and CCS with the Institute

At EU Industry Week 2021, the Global CCS Institute and the Clean Energy Ministerial discussed CCS and Industrial decarbonisation strategies with EU policymakers and Industry Experts. The takeaways from these meetings look positive for the future of CCS deployment. Initiatives like the EU Innovation fund – where 20% of funding application requests included a CCUS component – will undoubtedly help to scale-up the technology in Europe.


 Global CCS Industry Announces the Women in CCUS Network

The Institute celebrated International Women’s Day 2021 by launching the ‘Women in CCUS Network’ (#WiCCUS). This Network will bring together women working on carbon capture to promote knowledge sharing, gender diversity, stakeholder engagement and collaboration.
